Hello everyone, my name is Andrew. I am 32 years old from Kenya, East Africa. I used to be married with 3 kids but due to circumstances beyond my control, I now live alone. Here's my story..
I used to work for Saudi Arabian airlines back from 2018-2020 may, as a service representative in Riyadh Saudi Arabian, being an expat working in a foreign country, I was allowed 1 month vacation each year to visit family in Kenya, so in may last year, that's when I got my annual leave. I was supposed to come home and also take care of my passport as it was about to expire. Unfortunately for me, I came to find out that the government back home were closed due to the pandemic then soon after, the flights got grounded and the country went into total lockdown which lasted for 3 months. All this time I was sitting at home with my family spending whatever money I had brought for my 1 month vacation. After the covid situation got better and my country started opening up offices I reached out to Saudi Arabian airlines to tell them I was still working on my passport only to find out I had already been terminated reason being I was away from duty for two months. I tried explaining to the HR about the situation but they wouldn't listen. I lost my job and my benefits just like that regardless it wasn't my fault whatsoever. Now that was only the beginning of my problems..
After I realized there's no way I'm getting my job back, I started looking for another one which proved to be almost impossible because most institutions were cutting off staff. As time went by,things got tougher. Both my parents died of COVID-19 I was forced to moved from the city as I could no longer pay rent. I went to live in nyeri a village somewhere quite far from the city. (About 250miles) about 2 months living in this horrible condition, my wife could not bare it anymore and she took the kids and left me. There was nothing I could do since I could not force her to stay
I have been staying here for the last one year. I have nothing to my name other than this wooden house and the stuff in it, it has no water, electricity nor any toilet or bathroom. Whenever I feel like going to the toilet, I only have to go at night in the bushes. I take baths inside the house.
I need help getting out of this place and getting my life together and hopefully get my children back with me. I will appreciate any form of help I get. Thank you.
